Caught in the vicious cycle of sex trafficking, Joy is charged with guiding new teenager Precious into the backstreets of Vienna. A veteran herself, Joy struggles to pay off her debts to her vindictive pimp and regain custody of her daughter. Yet, her hopes remain futile even as she becomes a police informant. Drawing on the experiences of the cast – many of them former expat sex workers – this social realist drama offers provocative insights into the underground sex world.
